 The season (so as the calendar says) is Autumn, but the bush looks like spring. Australia truly lives up to her tradition of topseyturvydom. We climb __down__ our mountain and make our roads and railways along the mountain tops. This season of Autumn (or "​Fall"​ as our Yankee cousins say) distinctively the season of the falling leaf and preparation by the vegetation would for the coming rigours of Winter, but since the recent rains new leaves are sprouting everywhere and bush plants are taking swift advantage of good conditions. Boronias are in bud and the Queensland and Cootamundra wattles are preparing for their annual show, by the way. Have you ever noticed how long these wattles carry their flower buds. Within a few weeks of the seed pods opening the next years flower buds appear and remain on the tree for nearly nine months before bursting into golden splendour. The season (so as the calendar says) is Autumn, but the bush looks like spring.

-The Casuarinas are in bloc to ate theme usually drab trees are clothed in glorious ​rushed ​suite and the sight of a well grown tree in the rays of the westering sun to one mostly ​forgotten. This show is confined to the male trees as the flowers on the female trees have to be looked for. The male flowers which cover the end of practically every "​needle",​ though in the seas they make such a rich feast of colour are individually not much to look at until they are examined under a lens when a tiny spray of delicately tinted flowers is revealed.+The Casuarinas are in bloom to and these usually drab trees are clothed in glorious ​rushet ​suite and the sight of a well grown tree in the rays of the westering sun to one not easily ​forgotten.

 Returning home (as it were) we have a yellow everlasting just bursting into bloom. We got the seed from the roadside of Barrengarry Pass. Everything else is making good headway except alas: the woody pear seedlings which have all died. More seeds have been planted and we are hoping for better luck this time. Returning home (as it were) we have a yellow everlasting just bursting into bloom.
